Default Clueless news reporting

It's good to get coverage, but wow. How can someone get this so wrong?

*Why* can't reporters run their piece past someone knowledgeable before publishing? Time, of course .. but gah.

Even something like "single place" to "single plane". It's perfectly clearly enunciated, and the reporter has it on on VIDEO.

Just remember it happens in absolutely every news report in every field. All the news you see about things you are not expert in is just as garbled.

Michael Crichton (Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park etc) coined the term "Murray Gell-Mann Amnesia effect" for this.
